Lindita is forty five years old and married. She has three children; one of them is still attending school. They live in the northwest of Albania and she is involved in two agricultural activities; one is animal husbandry and the other is planting crops and veggies.

Lindita has been practicing both of these activities for twenty-one years now, and the income she’s been generating from both has been the only one for her family. She claims that she gets help from her husband; he takes the products to the market to sell.

Lindita wants to increase the dairy products she produces, so she wants to add another dairy cow. This would be Lindita’s first loan from VisionFund Albania.
